YEREVAN. – A group of Armenia’s entrepreneurs who are importing and selling clothes and shoes are staging a protest in front of the main building of the government.
They complain about the recent changes made in the Customs Code, as a result of which they have to clear their imported goods from customs in Armenia at a higher duty.
The demonstrators noted that in this case, they will have to sell their products at prices that are six times more expensive, whereas the buyers cannot afford them.
At some point the situation became tense, as the police wanted to apprehend a young man, but those present did not let them.
